YoBs (Youth of Burley) is a flourishing youth club for older children and teenagers. Their main meeting is in The Place to Be adjacent to the church between 6pm and 8pm on Wednesday evenings where they have games and a wide range of craft activities and refreshments are available. Some of the young people are themselves involved in running the club which is overseen by a number of adults. In addition, the YoBs play football at Avon Tyrrell on Friday evenings and arrange other events from time to time.
